The Enchanted Land19 May 2023
Form 2 received a final letter from George, the giant.
The letter was thanking the children for writing to Jack. George has now received all his belongings back. He has made friends with Jack and he went for tea with him on Sunday. George has given Jack some of his money, so he is no longer poor and he has invited Jack to the castle for tea next week. George was delighted that the children had planted the beans so very carefully.
Form 2 decided to climb up the beanstalk to see what was at the top. We used our imagination to create a magical land. It was wonderful to hear their ideas and their creative minds working together. Form 2 visited the Enchanted Land. The land was a magical place with unicorns, fairies, dragons and fluffy, lovely animals. The children described their Enchanted Land and it all sounds amazing!
In science, the children were exploring which ball would bounce the highest. We discussed a fair test and tested many different balls. The children recorded their results using a metre stick.
In maths, the children have continued to consolidate money and they have been working on getting change from the shop. We used the Form 2 shop so that the children could use real coins and buy many items. They were also constructing their own bar charts and enjoyed collecting data.
During humanities, we learnt about rules. We discussed why rules were important and why certain places needed rules. It is inspiring to see all the children so engaged and contributing.
